Delridge is composed of nine smaller neighborhoods:
A Brief History Lesson
In 1905 William Pigott and Judge E.M. Wilson opened the Seattle Steel Company. Delridge built up around the new steel mill beginning with a passenger train carrying 500 people from Seattle to the opening reception. The mill has been running strong since, and it is now occupied by Nucor Steel. Delridge itself, however, has grown into its own.
Assuming moderate traffic, Delridge is only a 15 minute drive from downtown Seattle. This puts you right in the middle of the action as an easy home base for all of your adventures. You are in striking distance of the Museum of Flight, the Woodland Park Zoo, the Seattle Art Museum, the Space Needle, EMP Museum, Safeco Field, and more.
